    I'm new to varget and loaded a couple hundred 24.3 of varget with some Nosler 77g Hp/bt competition buletts . I was cleaning my rifle this afternoon and was surprised at how clean it was. Is it the long 77's helping to clean the barrel or does varget burn that clean ? Just wondering if y'all have had the same results .
    "Powder" Why doesn't the spell check work on the titles?

    I use a lot of Varget. It seems to be as clean or cleaner than the other powders I use.

    I've never used Varget, but have read a lot about it.

    What burning rate range is it in???

    Almost identical to 4320. A bit faster than 4350 series. It'sa good powder, you can use it in almost anything.

    I run 4350 in my .30 cals,,,I get real good performance and not as much felt recoil for some reason. I just loaded a bunch of .308's with Varget, however many it takes to use up a pound of powder. I like it in my .308 semi auto.

    I have had very good luck with Varget in .243 Win and 5.56 for high accuracy loads, and it does burn clean.

    I have used Gather for a few years now . It is the military powder for the Austrailian. Army. Almost an oxymoron . A clean powder for military use lol .
    It is very clean . And if u get bench rest , wich is the same powder just smaller extuded . I use that in my 223 with great results
